Glass Arts



Stained Glass Workshop

John Vaughn

In this workshop we will complete a small Tiffany style suncatcher, ornament, or flower. Students will be able to choose a pre-drawn pattern from a variety of designs, and be guided as they learn to cut the glass (chosen from a variety of types and colors), smooth the glass pieces with a grinder, apply copper foil tape, solder the pieces together into the final piece using lead-free solder, and add jump rings or a copper wire stem. The patterns available will offer a variety of levels of difficulty so students may choose what best suits them.

Introduction to Lampworking: Glass Beads

Renee Kingsley

Glass bead making is an ancient art form that has experienced a great resurgence in the past several years. There are countless varieties of style, color and shape that combine to make beautiful and unique glass beads. In this class you will be introduced to the equipment, tools, materials and techniques used to safely melt and form glass into glass beads. You will learn how to lay dots and lines on the surface of the bead as a basis of bead design and style. Learn how to use tools and marvering techniques to shape glass into round beads. You will leave the class with your own beautiful beads and perhaps a dose of glass bead fever!
